We did paint night and bring your dog to zoom

The paint "night" was actually during work hours or did you schedule it in the evening after the workday was over?

Yes. I think instead of virtual happy hours. You could do online gaming. Or better yet have a weekly discussion on things people are doing working on.

Husband Relies on Me for Lunch - I know this is dumb, but before the pandemic, my husband ate lunch at the office and I was generally in charge of dinner. He’s super flexible with buying takeout so I never found it annoying. Since the pandemic began though, my husband has begun relying on me to provide him lunch while WFH. I’m busy during the day, and we have different lunch preference schedules. He does not get how annoying it is to me to have to be in charge of his lunch. Am I in the wrong?
